/2 front brake

Post by mcsherry1328 »

Looking at a /2 conversion online with a newer and larger front brake, it reminded of wanting to ask what you recommend for a larger front brake brake for sidecar use.

Did you ever come up with a front brake for your conversion?
I don't care for the disc brake look 'but like the big diameter drum look.
